B.B. King headlined the venue at the Rainbow Theatre in 1973 with support acts from Lou Reed, Golden Earring & The Persuasions.

Jill Furmanovsky recalls, “When I began Rockarchive in 1998 with a choice of 30 Images from my archive, this was the first image that came to mind. As well as being great musician B.B. King was a most nobel man, and that summed up Rockarchive‚Äôs underlying philosophy: to bestow dignity on the true musicians and also the art of rock and roll photography.”

This image is available as a 20×16″ silver gelatin print in an edition of 30. It is also available as a giclee print at sizes A1 or A0 from an edition of just 10. All prints are numbered, signed by Jill Furmanovsky and come with a certificate of authenticity.
